Liner notes for "Joe Whitaker":
This selection is from my former band "Out of the Rain" and was recorded in 1992.
JOE WHITAKER (Don West/Marla Fibish ©1989)
Don West is a poet, preacher, worker, activist, and founder of The Appalachian Folklife Society of Pipestem, West Virginia. His poems speak, and often angrily, of the sorrows, joys and hardships of life. 'Joe Whitaker' is Marla's setting of West's moody and haunting poem 'A-Trompin.'
Lead vocal: Marla
Out of the Rain is: Richard Adrianowicz (vocals, guitar, whistle), Marla Fibish (vocals, mandolin, mandola, guitar), Suzanne Friend (vocals, whistle, bodhran), Cait Reed (fiddle, vocals).
